Ferrari Hublot Esports Series is now in full throttle as phase one of the virtual championship has officially begun. The competition – open to European citizens of 18 years and older – is a chance for wannabe racing drivers to join the FDA Hublot Esports Team, alongside sim racing talent David Tonizza, reigning F1 Esports Series champion, and Enzo Bonito, another highly experienced and dedicated sim racer.
The first race, held last Sunday on the Spa Francorchamps circuit, was won by Jarno Koch. It was an exciting race, which saw the German lead from the first bend and clinch ultimate victory by mere seconds.
This weekend – Sunday 13 September at 20:00 – the second qualifying race will be held live on the Ferrari DriverAcademy Official Social Channels. The race will be held in Imola and twenty-four aspiring champions will compete. These drivers have been selected from those who achieved the best times during the weekly qualifiers.
More knockout rounds are planned the same time on Sunday 20 and Sunday 27 September, with qualifying open from Monday to Thursday of those weeks to finally determine the six drivers who will advance in the AM Championship.
The live broadcasts for all races in the Ferrari Hublot Esports Series can be found on the Official Twitch, Youtube and Facebook Channels. The commentary will be provided by Nicki Shields, famous for her performance in the FIA Formula E Championship, and Paul Jeffrey, expert Sim Racing journalist and official voice of established companies such as Sro Esports and Race Department.
